Oxford University Press

Umeå University researchers can publish open access at no cost in most Oxford University Press journals. Read more about the terms of our agreement with the publisher and what it means for you here.

The open access publishing fee has been pre-paid through an agreement between the library and Oxford University Press (OUP). The agreement applies to open access publishing in hybrid journals included in the Oxford Journals Collection and in their open access journals OUP Fully Open Access.

Terms and conditions

  • You must be the corresponding author, i.e., the one handling communication with the publisher and journal.
  • Your Umeå University affiliation must be stated in the published article.
  • Use your university e-mail ending with The e-mail domain is often used to recognize your eligibility.
  • The agreement applies to articles with a 2022 acceptance date.
  • Your article will be published under a CC BY license in most cases. Some OUP journals only offer a more restrictive license, such as CC BY-NC-ND or CC BY-NC. Please note that the “standard license” is not an open access license.
  • Please note that any additional charges, for color illustrations etc., are not covered by the agreement.

How the publishing process works

Once your article has been accepted for publication by OUP, you should:

  • log in to “Author Services” (you will receive a link from OUP when your article has been accepted)
  • choose and approve an open access license (for example CC BY) under “Manuscript Licenses”
  • on the page “Publishing Charges for Your Article”, select “Swedish Universities (Bibsam Affiliated)" from the dropdown list under “Open Access Prepayment Account”.

Detailed instructions can be found on the OUP webpage:
